COCKBURN Bowling and Recreation Club has moved in to Visko Park, which officially opened on Saturday.

The new facility, which covers more than 1400sq m and will be home to the 54-year-old club, has two synthetic bowling greens, a new bowling club members’ section with a bar and darts area, a large multi-purpose activity and function room available for community hire, a commercial kitchen to cater for functions and other meals, and meeting and office facilities.

Volleyball WA will run competitions and training from beach volleyball courts at the facility, while Area 5 Football will offer mini-|football competitions.

Bowling club president Pat McBride said it was an exciting time of growth for the organisation.

“People are wholeheartedly embracing the new facility and we hope the people of the district continue to adopt it as their social centre,” he said.

Volleyball WA chief executive Robyn Kuhl said the new facility would enable Volleyball WA to expand its presence in the south metropolitan area with a new beach volleyball club.
